Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Second Amendment

                The topic for discussion on this Constitution Monday comes from the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America:  “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”  Please note that the Second Amendment plainly says “the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

                I found an article published on January 16, 2016, about a statement made by the Vice President of the United States.  Joe Biden was interviewed on CNN by Gloria Borger.  During the interview Mr. Biden said, “The Second Amendment says you can limit who can own a gun….  People who are criminals shouldn’t have guns.  People who are schizophrenic and have mental illnesses shouldn’t have guns.”

                Mr. Biden and the entire Obama Administration have been trying for seven years to limit the rights of Americans to “keep and bear arms.”  Each time there is a mass killing, Mr. Obama and others in the administration blame the Second Amendment and introduce new bills and new executive actions to take guns away from Americans.  Now they are using mental illness in their attempt.  There is even talk about requiring those on Social Security to give up their guns in order to continue to receive the benefits they earned while working.

                Please do not be deceived by people who lie to get the things they want.  As you can see above, the Second Amendment does not give the government power to limit our right to have guns.
